Madrid [Spain], Feb 27 (ANI): Manchester City's Kevin De Bruyne said he was happy to take the responsibility after he successfully converted a penalty against Real Madrid.

"I was happy to take the responsibility and to try to help the team. I never blame anyone if they take a penalty and miss. I took the responsibility so its nice to help the team," the club's official website quoted De Bruyne as saying.

Manchester City secured a 2-1 win over Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Thursday.
